Rough and Tumble, Chapter 221: Test of Courage

Chapter 221: Test of Courage

On the last day of swimming lessons, Zeke finally received permission to climb the big ladder. Timothy couldn’t be persuaded to join his friend, but he waited on his boogie board, right next to their swimming teacher. She called, “Ready when you are, Zeke!”


Ethan was waiting for his charge at the top of the ladder, so he saw Zeke’s eyes widen and knees wobble. “High,” the boy whispered.

“We have flown higher, in dreams,” Ethan whispered.

“Gonna chicken out?” hollered Neil, who stood with the other Pomeroys. Momma’s camera was ready.

“You watch!” Zeke challenged. “I’m gonna fly!”
